Pastel Rainbow

 This Tumbling Leaves stencil from Simon Says Stamp is one of my favorites. I used a stencil paste on watercolor paper and then blended with Tim Holtz distress oxide inks of Worn Lipstick, Scattered Straw, Broken China, and Milled Lavender. Really love this ink combo! Added some pearls and a glittery birthday sentiment. For Simon's Wednesday Anything Goes challenge.

Weekly Christmas Cards


These are for my Facebook group's Weekly Christmas Card Challenge that I have been managing to keep up with so far. It's only February I know but I haven't missed any yet.
The first card uses Studio Light paper with Tim Holtz/Sizzix "Harvey" Nutcracker and Diesires gate.
The second theme was penguins and I used this cute stamp from Crafty Individuals.
The last was silver/gray/white colors and I recycled this pretty silver embossed tree by adding a Simon Says Stamp snowflake die with an SU embellishment and some of their silver webbed ribbon.

Milestone Birthday

My husband Jim just had a special birthday and I made a card to celebrate that and his love of watches and Snoopy. He has loved Snoopy since he was a kid and he called him Noop Noop :) The embossing folder with the timepieces on it is from Darice and I made the background with blue and copper acrylic paints, SU numbers die, and big sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Big Hugs.

Cards For Cubs Drive

 I have been working on Cards For Cubs this weekend. I pledged 50 but think I can do a bunch more! If you have some free time I'm sure they would appreciate any that you might be able to send. The drive is open until the end of March.
